Distance Matrix Calculate

KNIME Distance Matrix Extension version 4.1.1.v202001312017 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

Calculates distance values for all pairs of rows of the input table. The result is appended to the input table as a single column containing distance vector values.


Distance Function
Select distance function to use. The panel does only appear if there is no distance measure connected (Port 1).
Column Selection
Select columns contributing to distance calculation. The panel does only appear if there is no distance measure connected (Port 1).
Appended Column Name

Chunk Size
